GoodReads Interview with their community manager
Posted 25 March 2011 - 12:36 PM
In terms of self-promotion for authors, he has this to say:
Q&Q: What are some of the more successful or popular ways that publishers, authors, booksellers, and libraries are using the site?
Patrick Brown: Giveaways are probably our most popular promotional tool. Our users love them, and publishers get their books into the hands of readers, who in turn review the books and help generate buzz around the titles.
We also offer a lot of opportunities for authors to interact with readers, and many publishers have encouraged their authors to take an active role on the site — claiming their profiles, reviewing books, syncing their blogs, and participating in featured author groups and live video chats. In terms of bookstores and libraries, we allow our users to customize the links on their book pages to take them to the bookstore or library of their choice. Additionally, quite a few libraries and schools have begun using Goodreads discussion groups to track their summer reading programs or just to provide a discussion board for their patrons.
AQC Question: How many of you are currently on GoodReads.com and how are you using it?
